Sell your junk cars for the highest value with 1800 Salvage

One person’s junk is another’s treasure. In this case, quite literally. A battered junk car is utterly useless to most, but to the experts at 1800 Salvage, it’s an opportunity. More importantly, it’s an opportunity we’ll pay you top dollar for. 

1800 Salvage offers highly-competitive prices for all junk cars and vehicles. You’ll be paid instantly, and our free junk car removal service will pick up your car within 24 hours.

As leading Australian salvage car buyers, we’re not worried about the state of the car. Whether you’re a private seller getting rid of your second-hand starter car, or a panel beater or insurance assessor with a totally wrecked write-off, we’ll buy it. 

Once your junk car is in our hands, we’ll take it apart and salvage as much as possible. Components and materials will be recycled, upcycled or restored to minimise how much gets sent to a landfill. The way we see it, that’s a win for you, for us, and for our environment.

Cash for cars of all conditions

Free car removal services for junk cars

Junk cars aren’t exactly the easiest to store. Space is money at a panel beater or mechanic’s garage; it can’t afford to be wasted on a junk car that can’t be driven or repaired. Space is even more precious in private residences, where junk cars sit in gardens or take up curb space. 

1800 Salvage offers a free tow truck service to remove your junk car. We’ve also partnered with a leading car removal company to be able to provide same-day car removals. Our free car removal will make your life easier.

Get paid instant cash for any junk vehicles you want removed

Thanks to our incredible towing partners, we can remove more than just cars. 1800 Salvage can remove motorcycles, ATVs, ride-on mowers, vans and light trucks. We can even remove light machinery such as forklifts and scissor lifts. If you’re looking for more than just cash for cars, but for other vehicles, choose 1800 Salvage. 

Whatever type of vehicle you have to sell, 1800 Salvage can buy it and remove it. Contact our team to chat about logistics.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Can you tow junk cars from regional areas?

Yes. 1800 Salvage’s expansive towing network can reach any destination in Australia, including regional and remote towns.

FAQ icon

Can I sell my junk car if it’s unregistered?

Yes, you can sell unregistered junk cars to 1800 Salvage.

We recommend keeping the license plates — you can return these to your local roads authority for reimbursement.

FAQ icon

What kind of damage will 1800 Salvage not accept?

We will not buy cars and vehicles with extensive flood damage. However, we do have an acceptable level of water damage that we can still pay for. If you’re unsure how extensively your junk car has been flood-damaged, send through some pictures and give us a call — we’ll discuss it with you.

Apart from that, we don’t fuss about any level of damage. Even if your car has been smashed to smithereens and entirely written off, we’ll offer you a handsome price for it.

FAQ icon

Can I sell my junk vehicle if it is under finance?

No, 1800 Salvage cannot buy junk cars under finance. As a licensed motor car trader, we are legally prohibited from doing so. However, we can still help you to get rid of your car.

1800 Salvage can remove your junk car and take physical control of it, while you maintain control of its financial obligations. That way, you won’t have to worry about the vehicle taking up space on your property or posing a safety hazard to your staff or loved ones.

Contact our team, and we’ll discuss how we can help you.
